Afghanistan is a landlocked country in Asia with a population of around 32 million, a capital city of Kabul and two official languages of Dari and Pashto. It is also one of the worlds most least developed country, importing $7 billion of goods but only exporting $784 million worth of goods. The primary source of energy in Afghanistan is hydro power followed by fossil fuel and then solar energy however the majority of the power used comes from imports from neighboring Iran, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
Afghanistan Grid Overview
Afghanistan Socket Type
Afghanistan Grid Coverage
In Afghanistan the grid runs at a frequency of 50Hz, this is the same frequency as most of Europe.The Voltage in Afghanistan is 380V for three phase and 220V for single phase. Afghanistan has the resources to produce over 23000 MW of power from hydroelectricity, however due to lack of spending on the power plants this number is yet to be fulfilled. Afghanistan also has massive potential to produce high amounts of energy using wind or solar power.
In Afghanistan they use the socket type C and F. Below shows type C on the left and type F on the right, both are compatible with one another.
As of 2017, the grid in Afghanistan reached 97.7% of its population however the more rural areas of Afghanistan may not receive 24 hour access to electricity. The CASA-1000 project aims to change this allowing the surplus hydroelectricity from Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan to be exported into Afghanistan and Pakistan and therefore increasing their available power.
